Bulgaria - Collective agreement for miners - April 30, 2017

The signing of a collective agreement ended a conflict between the miners at the Obrochishte manganese mine in North-eastern Bulgaria and the mine's owner. The signing of the agreement was announced by the national ombudsman who has been actively involved in the efforts to resolve a dispute between the miners and their employer. The miners have been in a cycle of strikes for a month, protesting over unpaid wages. They also demanded a pay rise and a new collective agreement to address their grievances.
